Description
Taking place on Wednesday 28 June in Guildhall – at the heart of London’s finance district – the event will bring together 700 senior public and private sector decision-makers to help turbocharge our transition to net zero.

The net-zero transition is both an urgent existential imperative and a significant commercial opportunity. The robust independent Net Zero Review commissioned by the UK Government believes that net zero is “the economic opportunity of the 21st century”. With the clock ticking, we need to champion bold leadership and brave action, catalyze innovation and collaboration, and mobilize finance to go further faster.

The Climate Innovation Forum, organized by Climate Action, will bring together policymakers, investors, climate-tech solution providers, business leaders, and innovation catalyzers to help achieve our net zero ambitions regionally, nationally, and globally, whilst maximizing the role of innovation in delivering net zero growth opportunities.

Organized by Climate Action, the action-orientated event will build upon the conclusions of the Net Zero Review and shine a light on the pro-growth opportunities that net zero presents within the UK and on a global stage.

Key Speakers, you will hear from: Chris Skidmore, Chair, Net Zero Review Graham Stuart, Minister of State, Department for Energy Security and Net Zero Amina Mohamed, Deputy Secretary-General, United Nations Cllr Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council Bianca Pitt, Co-Founder, SHE Changes Climate Shevaun Haviland, Director General, British Chamber of Commerce David Saddington, Head of Sustainable Supply Chains, Department for Energy Security & Net Zero Bryony Livesey, Director, ISCF, Industry Decarbonisation Challenge, Innovate UK Her Excellency Shamma Al Mazrui COP28 Youth Climate Champion Minister of Community Development, United Arab Emirates
